The Chilliwack Lunachicks continued their post-season roll, moving into the final four with a hard- fought 2-0 victory over the visiting North Shore Rage last Sunday.
The local classic women’s division soccer team opened the scoring 26 minutes into the game when Kerry Williams pushed in a rebound from Lisa Shearer.
Less than a minute later Cara Brendzy picked up an errant clearing attempt by North Shore and lofted a 30 yard shot over the keeper to give Chilliwack the 2-0 lead. Chilliwack’s netminder, Lisa Hiemstra, was busy protecting the shutout.
She made a spectacular toe save in the second half.
Chilliwack entered the game with only 11 players due to injuries and vacation, and the situation became more difficult when Brendzy was forced to leave the game with a groin injury at the beginning of the second half.
Playing one short forced Chilliwack to change their game plan to protect their lead.
